  1. so i was looking around for lighting for my new box its going to be a stealth dresser or something around that size. My plan was going to be alot of CFL's until i fell upon these 90 watt led ufo lights. How much do they cost to run compared to cfls and how many plants can i grow with them. can i veg and flower with them?
  2. it all depends on what you want to grow i got 2 ufos in a 2x4x6 tent they worked great for veg but i grow trees and had to add many cfls to get below my canopy if u were to scrog or sog and trim they would prob work for flower but they aint a 400w hid at all
    my opinion is they have theyre place no heat at all and cost nothing to run perfect for growing smaller plants in a tight space tell me alittle more about ur grow i can give u more info they are great for autos tho
    peace stoney
  3. I'm sure an experienced grower decided to use LED's on one of his grows, because they were popping up all over the net.

    His grow turned out inferior to his others. I'll try and find it for you.
  4. Thanks for your response! Well i am doing a smaller sized stealth grow prob have a dresser that is about 1 1/4 foot wide and 3 or 4 feet tall and 3 or 4 feet long and im not sure how many plants i would be able to get in there how many you think? UFO look so good because of heat issues and electric costs especially because i dont need huge amounts of bud. I would plan to veg with either 1 or 2 90 watt ufos in that box if i had two should i add cfls? also would plan on veg and flower with the 2 ufos would that work or should cfls be put in there at some point? thanks for all your help! :hello:
  5. Did you mean this thread? http://forum.grasscity.com/advanced-grow-journals/485301-rumples-led-challenge.html

    The best thing about that thread is he updated his original post to include all the updates and summarized how he thought the LED's did compared to his usual HID grows.
  6. ufo 90w works good for me so far but they are $350 a pop. and the 180W big boy ufo ( prob be better off with that one) is 5 or $600. price to lumens may not be worth it but it gives such tight nodes.---stay frosty___
  7. yea i think im going to get 2 90 watt ones because someone is selling them fairly cheap on craigslist near me so i will pick those up but with 2 ufos how big of an area can i grow in and how many plants and can i veg and flower using ufo?
